PREFACE.

FT1HE present volume deals with those languages of the Man-Khmer and Tal families
which fall within the limits of this Survey, The Mon-Khmer are the oldest, and
the Tai are the latest, of the Indo-Chinese immigrants into India. If we arranged these
languages chronologically, the Tai ones should come after the Tibeto-Burman Family. It
has, however, heen found convenient to put these two short sections together into one
volume.
